    Welcome to the molten core of the political universe, the hottest battleground in the biggest battleground state. Since 1960, Hillsborough County has called every single presidential election except for one—and there’s no reason to think that voters here won’t do it again. Look around this county of 1.2 million and you’ll find a mash-up of past and future: a solidly Democratic city bracketed by Republican-leaning suburbs; strawberry fields, ranch-style homes, and gentrified urban neighborhoods; Puerto Ricans, Cuban-Americans, African-Americans, Midwestern retirees, college kids, active military, and young families; the brick and wrought iron of historic Ybor City, and the stucco and...

    STRESSFUL lifestyles could be the key trigger for incurable Alzheimer’s disease, scientists believe. Even the trauma of bereavement or moving home could bring on dementia. Scientists funded by the Alzheimer’s Society are investigating the link and hope their findings could lead to new drug treatments to fight the disease. A study at the University of Kuopio in Finland has found that the long-term effects of stress may be the biggest cause of the disease. When stressed, our blood pressure rises as our heart beats faster and levels of the hormone cortisol in the bloodstream also increase. Experts believe once cortisol...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Monday revived her inflammatory accusation that President Obama's healthcare law creates "death panels." Palin used her Facebook page to capitalize on the publicity surrounding the Supreme Court's upcoming healthcare decision. She said she wanted to take the opportunity to stand by comments in a 2009 Facebook post that touched off a firestorm of controversy. "I stand by everything I wrote in that warning to my fellow Americans because what was true then is true now, and it will remain true as we hear what the Supreme Court has to say," Palin said in Monday's...

    Arizona Republican Rep. Ben Quayle asked Homeland Security committee chairman Rep. Peter King to bring Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano before his committee to answer questions about her decision to suspend immigration law enforcement programs in his state on Monday. Napolitano’s decision came in the wake of a Supreme Court decision that partially upheld Arizona’s controversial immigration enforcement law. While other parts of the law were struck down, the part allowing state and local law enforcement to inquire into someone’s immigration status remained. Quayle berated Napolitano’s decision in a letter to King, saying “we have entered upon a new...

They really believed that Obama was someone unique and different compared to the candidates of the past. They all thought he was so special. Quite a few were taken in (or should I say hypnotized) by his speaking skills. I am not sure what they thought Obama would bring to the White House and what he would do for Americans,...

    By this time, it’s obvious that our glorious leader and fearless visionary is facing a very dicey path on his way to ‘another four years’. The facts are that no one in their right mind wants to see another four years of government sponsored penury… or government tyranny. Barack Hussein Obama committed his latest unconstitutional and illegal act by pronouncing the illegal alien ‘dream act’ through imperial fiat. Nothing, but nothing, this president has done to date is going to have the slap-in-the-face effect that his latest pandering will generate.

    I think this might serve as basis for a counter-suit. The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police. There will be an increased number of calls from Arizona police, checking on immigration status-- and Obama refuses to budge the number of personnel handling such calls. In most cases, they simply won't even return the call (or pick up the...

The world is teetering on a new Great Depression. Democracies are at risk. In the 1930s there were an estimated two billion people worldwide. Today there are seven billion people in the world; the pressures to feed them and meet their other needs have increased exponentially. It strains relations between nations and within them. In the U.S. the Great Depression began in 1929 and lasted until the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 that...

Four more years!” Along Fifth Avenue in New York, a group of about 200 Obama supporters who walked the parade route were cheered by crowds waving powder-blue “L.G.B.T. for Obama” placards, referring to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. “Obama!

    President Barack Obama has had a terrible few weeks, and it could get worse. Especially if the Supreme Court accepts the ancient premise in that old, forgotten document called the Constitution that the federal leviathan cannot force Americans to purchase a thing, let alone health care. But I still believe that the guy from Chicago will win re-election in November, despite all the anguish around him, because the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, isn't exactly inspiring either. Romney is no conservative alternative, he's merely the un-Obama corporatist, eerily similar to the big-government Illinois Republicans who partnered with Democrats to spend the...

    There was something about the way Hillary Clinton said it that touched a nerve. “People are dying,” the Secretary of State said forcefully and finally – with an emphasis on the word “dying” that can only be born of outrage. She was talking about Syria and the brutal repression by embattled President Bashar al-Assad against a popular uprising – an uprising that Clinton and President Obama hope leads to the toppling of the Assad regime. The comment came during a June 13 press conference at the State Department as Clinton stood at a podium next to the Indian foreign minister,...

    The big question from last week's assertion of executive privilege by Barack Obama was what, exactly, was so troublesome that the White House couldn't have Attorney General Eric Holder release it. It certainly wasn't to protect the precedent of confidentiality of presidential advice; Obama and Holder have insisted that the President had no knowledge of Operation Fast and Furious until it made the headlines. Even the assertion of privilege attempted to skirt that issue by relying on deliberative process rather than direct presidential privilege, although it seems almost certain that deliberative process won't shield Holder and others at executive agencies....

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is doing her part to help the Muslim Brotherhood implement the Turkey Strategy in Egypt. As I’ve pointed out before, if you want to see what’s going to happen in Egypt, look at Turkey, where the military was Atatürk’s bulwark against what would otherwise be the certainty that Islamists would overwhelm the pro-Western civil society the Kemalists labored against Islamic norms to build. (Caroline Glick makes a similar argument in a characteristically sharp post.) It has taken Turkey’s Islamic supremacist prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a decade of meticulous, determined gradualism to return Turkey to...

    It's time, once again, to clarify a major misrepresentation by General Motors and the media. That is the implication that the recently announced move to modify a portion of non-union pensions will result in an improvement of $26 billion to GM's pension shortfall. GM shares are down about 5% since the announcement, bringing into question the accuracy of the rosy projections. A Bloomberg Businessweek report notes Moody's Senior Vice President Bruce Clark's opinion that "When all is said and done, the company's total underfunded pension liability will be reduced by only $1 billion."

    Barack Obama’s political base always has been more “creative class” than working class—and his policies have favored that base, seeming to cater to energized issue and identity constituencies including African-Americans, Hispanics, gays, and greens, often at the expense of blue-collar workers. Yet improving conditions for those workers—particularly in the industrial heartland—could save his flagging presidency. The industrial zone’s four key states—Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania—constitute the most critically contested territory in this year’s contest. Fifty-four electoral votes are at play here, with Pennsylvania’s 20 votes alone equaling all those at stake in the much-ballyhooed battleground of the Intermountain West (Colorado,...

    WASHINGTON — As President Barack Obama considered adding as many as 40,000 U.S. forces to a backsliding war in Afghanistan in 2009, Vice President Joe Biden warned him that the military rationale for doing so was flawed, a new book about Obama's expansion of the conflict says. The book, "Little America: The War Within the War for Afghanistan," also says that in planning the drawdown of troops two years later, the White House intentionally sidelined the CIA. Obama purposely did not read a grim CIA assessment of Afghanistan that found little measurable benefit from the 30,000 "surge" forces Obama eventually...

It was 1983, and she was impressed when this cool, self-assured young man could tell immediately she was Australian. In those days most Americans, even supposedly cosmopolitan New Yorkers, couldn’t tell a Cockney from a Kiwi.

    In case you missed it, hiring fell a staggering 9 percent last month. The hidden secret is how bad hiring has been throughout the “recovery.” Economists say the recovery started in July 2009 — but the jobs picture still looks more like a recession. New hires not only fell during the recession, they’ve kept on falling during the “recovery” — something that isn’t supposed to happen. The economy has added jobs for 20 months, but very slowly. The total number of jobs has grown by just 1 percent during the 36-month “recovery.” In all past recoveries since 1970, the average...

    Russian president Vladimir Putin lands at Ben Gurion Airport Monday for a visit to Israel, the Palestinian Authority and Jordan in an effort to improve his image, blackened by support for Syria and Iran. Russia has been engaged in a modern version of the diplomatic Cold War standoff between Washington and Moscow 60 years ago and has been an obstacle to moves by Western allies that would allow them to be the major influence on Iran’s nuclear development and Syrian President Bashar Assad’s violent struggle to keep himself and his regime alive at the expense of the lives of thousands...
  • Women and Children First

    For decades, Democrats have had success in portraying Republicans as being a party of older white males. They have often portrayed us as insensitive to the needs of our weakest citizens – most notably women and children. Recently, President Obama played the latter card as he announced a new policy on illegal immigration. He predicated his announcement of amnesty for the children of illegal aliens by saying we are a “better nation” than one that deports innocent children. For a moment, I thought he said we were a “better nation” than one that aborts innocent children. Unfortunately, I was...

    As Barack Obama's lead over Mitt Romney in the polls narrows, and his presumed fundraising advantage seems about to become a disadvantage, it's alibi time for some of his backers. His problem, they say, is that some voters don't like him because he's black. Or they don't like his policies because they don't like having a black president. So, you see, if you don't like Obamacare, it's not because it threatens to take away your health insurance, or to deny coverage for some treatments. It's because you don't like black people. This sort of thing seems to be getting more...

    Although he was recently overheard saying Mitt Romney would do a better job of running the country, Mayor Bloomberg gave President Obama good marks yesterday for his job in office. “It’s easy to say that the president should be doing more, but he’s got a lot of things to balance,” Bloomberg said on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS.” “On balance, I think he’s doing a good job.” Pointing to a polarized Congress and troubles around the world, Bloomberg said Obama has gotten a bad rap. “I happen to think that Obama’s been a much better president than people give him credit...

    For the left, Operation Fast and Furious is George W. Bush's fault, or it's a witch-hunt over already answered questions. After all, Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department gave more than seven thousand documents to the House committee investigating the matter.Considering the sheer volume of paper involved, two questions remain unanswered: First, who ordered the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to sell assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels? Second, did the person or persons in question ever once consider the deadly consequences this action would have on the lives of innocent people caught in the crossfire?For some, the...
